Cirrus Aircraft announced the TRAC Series, a purpose-built configuration of the SR Series line of aircraft developed specifically for flight training institutions. Combining the Perspective+ by Garmin flight deck along with the performance and safety found in the SR Series, the TRAC Series includes tailored features such as rear seat push-to-talk functionality and a landing gear simulator aimed at increasing training productivity.
The integrated Perspective+ flight deck includes two large flight displays, a Flight Management System (FMS) keypad controller, an Electronic Stability and Protection system, as well as integrated engine indication and crew alerting/warning systems – all features found on today’s advanced airliners.
Cirrus Aircraft has redesigned the interior to meet the unique needs of a high-utilization training environment, replacing the luxury materials found in the SR Series with an all-weather floor liner and wear-resistant seats. The cabin provides a workspace to learn and train, with more space than typical training aircraft, rear seats for additional students or observers, and optional air conditioning.
The TRAC SR20 comes equipped with a modern Lycoming IO-390, 215HP power plant, providing reliability and efficiency for up to 2,400 hours before overhaul, and features a durable all-composite airframe structure with the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System. The TRAC Series is further enhanced by interactive, tailored flight training content through Cirrus ApproachTM, including online courses, videos and the iFOM (interactive Flight Operations Manual) for convenient learning anywhere in the world.
